My Interview on CFWeekly Will Instead Air Next Week

Just a slight change in plans. Matt and Peter from CFWeekly were able to interview the conference coordinator of CF.Objective (Jared Rypka-Hauer) this week and thus will be airing that interview for episode one. They plan to then air the followup interviews (such as mine) relating to the conference thereafter.

So stay tuned (okay, bad joke :)).

ColdFusion Weekly Interviews Me for Episode One of Their Podcast

Next week ColdFusion Weekly will be airing the first episode of their ColdFusion podcast. They've been doing a lot of work behind the scenes and recording a lot of interviews to make sure that they have a lineup of regular episodes ready to air while they can prepare more material for future episodes.

Next week will be the first episode. I have been informed that their interview with me at the CF.Objective() conference last week will be in episode 1. The interview was based on the session I gave FarCry 3.0: CMS in the Real World.

They decided to interview me during a break at the event. Unfortunately we had to stop/start in the middle of the interview due to a few interruptions (it was kind of funny). I'm curious to see how they splice the interruptions together into a seamless interview :).

Update: My interview has been moved to a later date (don't worry, its for a good reason :) ).

Tom Jordahl Announces RDS Eclipse Plugin Beta to be Released to the Public (Very Soon)

I'm here at CF.Objective and have seen some great presentations so far today.

The keynote session was presented by Adobe's Tom Jordahl who demonstrated some really cool features and interaction that the new soon-to-be Eclipse plugin for RDS support will be offering. He also slipped in that a beta of the plugin will be available on Adobe Labs when the Flex 2.0 Beta 2 is released. When asked when the beta would be released to the public he of course avoided the question, but eventually hinted that Adobe is trying to get it out within the next 2 to 3 weeks.

So, this was my first look at the RDS plugin and I have to admit I was pretty impressed. Tom also gave us a quick sneak-peak at what looked like another Eclipse plugin (or it could have been part of the RDS plugin, I'm not sure) for ColdFusion code wizards (specifically a CFC creator).

Apparently Sean Corfield and Ray Camden have been harassing Mike Nimer for some specific features in this wizard tool (for our benefit).

From what I saw real quick, I was pretty impressed. Tom gave an example where he right-clicked on a table in a DB table and choose a CFC creator wizard. There were several really useful options in there. The one that caught my eye was an option for creating the CFC type. It had options to create an "Active Record CFC", a "Bean CFC, & DAO CFC", and "Flex Data Services Assembly CFS".

I'm Off to CF.Objective()

Well, I'm shutting down my system for the night and leaving for CF.Objective() early tomorrow morning.

If you're going to the conference and you see me there, make sure to say Hi. My plane arrives around 1:30pm, so I'll likely be at the hotel by 2:30pm. And make sure to check out my session (FarCry 3.0 - CMS in the Real World) at 2:30pm on Sunday.

cf.objective() Makes News on PRWeb

I haven't actually announced it yet, but I'll be speaking next month at the Coldfusion conference cf.objective. My topic will be about using the open source Farcry CMS as a content management system for building websites.

This morning I got an email from Judith Dinowitz (the PR manager for cf.objective 2006 and well-known author for many articles on House of Fusion) that the cf.objective conference made the news today on PRWeb and Google News.

Here's a snippet from the article:

cf.Objective() (, the first ColdFusion conference of 2006, is the only conference to focus solely on advanced ColdFusion topics and object oriented concepts. On March 11-12, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, ColdFusion programmers from all over the world will gather to learn to incorporate sophisticated techniques and Enterprise-level concepts into their ColdFusion programming.
